I used Ubuntu for many years as my "second" OS.

When I had started working in a more complex dev environment I switched to Ubuntu Linux as my main OS. Anyway, in the last couple of months I have discovered Debian: rock solid, stable as hell. Go-go-fly Ubuntu, Debian is my new love.

PCLinuxOS 2009...

This has been the single most stable OS of all for me. I cannot get it to crash!

I have it fully bootable from a 16GB USB stick auto-running into E-UAE on an AA1 netbook that is SSDless and HDDless...

My first attempt at Linux was a full genuine Yggdrasil P'n'P Fall 1995 edition. Never ever got it working correctly. Still got the original 2 CDs and Manual, Sadly the box has gone.

My next attempt was Caldera 7.0, Then 7.1, worked fine unless I wanted sound... ;o/

Then came Knoppix 3.something and that worked and my eyes lit up. I still use a live CD version of 5.1.1 for testing purposes.

Tried Mandriva/Mandrake, 9.0? can't remember, and that was seriously unstable.

Ended up with Debian 6.0.x + Gnome, (squeeze?), and use this along with PCLinuxOS 2009 + KDE, and Knoppix 5.1.1 + KDE as test beds and main OSes...

To re-iterate PCLinuxOS 2009 has been, and is the one, single most, stable consumer OS I have ever had the pleasure to use...

(Dare I say I am using Windows ATM, or is this considered swearing... ;o)

Bazza, G0LCU...

I currently for some reasons use Ubuntu, but i prefer Debian. Is most stable, safer and more organized under the appearance of the applications, for this my vote goes to her.
Or BackBox Linux (based on Ubuntu) if i have to do penetration test.

Wrote a cron file to reorder these polls in order of votes, descending.

Looks much better.

I voted for Ubuntu because that is what I have running now. Prior to that, I used Susie.
